“Science World has a unique benefit with their passes that allows my nanny to be listed on the card… at no extra cost to us.”

Tell us a little about yourself. What did you study?
I studied medicine in university and became a family physician, but I was interested in coding as early as high school.
I am an elected school board trustee for the public Francophone school board of BC and value not only the importance of French in the school curriculum, but science as well.
Our family has a Science World membership and we appreciate the value of the pass—knowing that you can integrate your visit into your daily life is a great thing. When you just come for the day, you feel as though you have to maximize your time. When you have a membership you can stop by on the way to the park or for a couple hours in the evening. It’s an opportunity for my kids to be constantly exposed to science. It becomes a habit.
Why do you feel that informal science learning is important?
Science is part of our everyday lives. Exposing your kids to science helps them become well rounded. When kids visit Science World, they’re able to touch the exhibits and associate learning with fun.
